The Mirror says Taylor will have to put in a transfer request to force through his £1million switch to Newcastle United.
The Swansea left-back was ready to agree a deal to play for the Geordies after they triggered a clause in his contract that allowed him to talk to interested clubs.
But Swansea blocked the deal yesterday, saying it was only a talks clause, and not an agreed price.
The ball is now in Taylor's court. He could take his own legal action or ask for a move to St James' Park.
